Support for Shakespeare Hospice support services

By IH Tuesday 02 April 2013 Updated: 08/04 08:45

SUPPORT is being provided for children, young people and their families affected by life-limiting illness.

Stratford Town Trust has awarded Shakespeare Hospice up to £208,000 over three years towards the development of support services.

Hospice chief executive Angie Arnold said: "We’re delighted the town trust is contributing towards our new project. Their grant towards the new services will help us to build on the support we have already started to give to Stratford’s young people. We still need more funds to make the whole project happen but the town trust have given us a great start."

The Hospice will provide four new services for young people – support for young carers, pre and post bereavement, day hospice support for transitional care patients (16 to 24 year-olds with life-limiting conditions), and a volunteering/education programme for local schools.

Development of the services is on-going. The Children’s Bereavement Service is already up and running and work has begun with young carers and local schools.
